Subject: RE: Songs of the American Civil War
Hey Bill...couldn't help but notice the difference re: "War Between The States" versus "Civil War." (*grin*) And I'll be looking for the video.

Heidi: Be sure to use "Lorena" and the story that goes with it. Banned from use on BOTH sides because of it's bad effect on morale, I think it was one of this country's earliest examples of song censorship.

Nice to know there are quite a few other enthusiasts/buffs out there...some really wonderful tunes came out of that period.
